December Rainbow Escape #4

This is my 4th entry for the Rainbow Escape set by Daisy Yellow

This is their prompt;
Use each color combination only once.... and each journaling technique only once. Match each color combination to a journaling technique. Work in any order. PICK A COLOR COMBINATION 
  • Magenta & Scarlet
  • Scarlet & Orange
  • Orange & Yellow
  • Yellow & Green
  • Green & Turquoise
  • Turquoise & Indigo
  • Indigo & Purple
  • Mind Map or Brainstorm
  • Top Ten List 
  • Quote or Lyrics
  • Patterns & Doodles
  • Alphabet Stamps, Stencil or Invent-a-Font
  • Write a Poem/Haiku *or* Use Found Poetry {Cut Words from Magazines}
  • Fancy Hand-Lettering Using a Calligraphy Pen, Brush Marker or Fine-Nibbed Marker 

For this page I chose Magenta and Scarlet and the technique is to write a haiku.

A haiku is a japanese poem that is 3 sentences, there are lots of different explanations on how they should be written. I picked the suggestion that it should be a poignant experience and it should have 2 juxtaposed ideas. There is a also a suggestion that it should have a 5-7-5 word limit but I have not managed to do that.

For the base colours I used derwent inktense blocks. I then used a mix of memento, distress and stampin up inks.

I used a range of background stamps and alphabet stamps for the words.

Hope you are all finding time to craft!
